Back loader for kayak car top?

4 posts in this topic

I’ve seen a few gizmos that attach to the back window of an SUV that you can load a kayak on and then slide it on to the factory roof rack. Supposed to save your back by reducing how much of the yak you actually have to lift off the ground. I ask because I want to get a new yak that’s gonna weight 85 lbs and no way my back can handle lifting that sucker up over my head to load it from the side of the SUV. Suggestions? Thanks!

I have a malone one that suctions to my rear windshield. Incredibly helpful and cheap (60 bucks). 

 

I prop the yak up and roll it up, super easy as long as there aren't 50MPH winds.

I'm 60+ years old but the Malone channel loader is fantastic and makes it so easy for me to car top.
